then they fired two real bullets. an autopsy report obtained by cnn shows them entering the side of his arm, indicating chamberlain was not facing the officers or had turned away. >> so the story that the police put out that he was an ax wielding black man trying to hurt a police officer is what it is, a flat-out lie. >> reporter: chamberlain's lawyers acknowledge he did throw out a silver object. >> at that moment, a bolt cutter comes from the police officers and removes the object. so from that point forward, there's absolutely no evidence that at any time mr. chamberlain had a weapon in his hands. >> reporter: there is no way to know. the taser video suddenly cuts off before the shots are fired. so you must have thought it is ironic in sort of the terrible way that someone summoned to your father's door to help save his life, if he had been having some kind of heart emergency -- >> yes. >> reporter: -- ended up shooting him. >> yes. and they took his life. unnecessarily. they didn't have to. >> reporter: chamberlain's niece wants to know why police couldn't defuse the confrontation and w

majority are opposed to the individual mandate as well as in a recent cnn/orc poll, suzanne, they found 55%, a small majority of independents are also opposed to the individual mandate. and that is a key constituency that both sides are clambering for. so this is the beauty of being in the majority. you can hold votes on the house floor and hold three separate hearings today on an issue that you find important. >> kate, they call it messaging. they call it symbolism. it's been done on both sides for both parties. is there any concern folks see this as show boating, that they are going to have to face criticism here, that they're not addressing what people really are concerned about, jobs and the economy? >> that's something the democrats are trying to hammer home. you heard that today and heard that leading up to this vote. democrats argue, look, why aren't we talking about jobs and the economy as well as bush era tax cuts? why are you holding this vote when you know it's going nowhere? republicans, i've heard them tell me time and time again, number one, they say we can walk and chew gum
